The Webber Energy Group researches alternative transportation fuels and systems, including the following:

  • Algal-based biofuels: Lifecycle energy & water needs, thermodynamic limits, geographically-resolved production potential
  • Electric Vehicles: Emissions tradeoffs, storage for grid firming, residential microgrid integration
  • Natural Gas for LDVs: Infrastructure and policy barriers – The Green American Road Trip
  • Water Needs for Biofuels: Benchmarking water needs
  • Integrating Renewable Energy and Storage for Marine Transportation

Webber Energy Group Publications on Alternative Transportation Fuels are also available.
